in reply to Is PerlMonks economically viable?

Worrying about how to fund the Monestary in the future is indeed worthy of discussion. Bandwidth comes at a price.

Perhaps a voluntary subscription model might work. Imagine, for a moment, a yearly voluntary payment for one to be considered "in good standing" on the Monastery scrolls.

Or, consider a sliding donation scale, allowing one to be

Monk$0
Monk in good standing$25
Monk in excellent standing$50
Monk in exemplary standing   $100
As a bonus, monks in exemplary standing might get their picture (in suitable monks garb) added to the random set that appears in the header.

Failing that, there's always the Bake Sale...
